Welcome

Hi there. Thanks for visiting my website. I’m the author of the short story collections Instruction Manual for Swallowing and The Stone Thrower. I write about absurd, futuristic and fantastical things colliding with everyday life. If you’d like to know more about me and my work, you’ll find it all here. This is also the home of my blog – I post about once a week.

“Early McEwan meets David Cronenberg…Genuine, unsettling talent.”
The Independent

“…this bold young writer is refreshing the form.”
Financial Times

“…hits the target every time.”
The Guardian

“Adam Marek is one of the best things to have happened to the short story this century…Any day now the word ‘Marekian’ is going to enter the language.”
Alison MacLeod, author of ‘Unexploded’
